Jaguars (6-4) at 49ers (4-6)
Sunday, 4:05 p.m.
Line: 49ers by 3
Jacksonville has little business being 6-4. Opponents have outscored the Jaguars, 199-235. They have recorded only 10 sacks. With Rashean Mathis out, the rookie Derek Cox joins the journeyman Tyron Brackenridge at cornerback, which is one reason Jacksonville’s opponents have thrown for 2,400 yards and 17 touchdowns. The Jaguars’ résumé is dotted with close victories against awful teams: 23-20 over the Rams, 24-21 over the Chiefs, 18-15 over the Bills. A triumph over the deteriorating 49ers will make the Jaguars a real threat to take a wild-card berth from a better team like the Steelers or the Broncos. If that happens, the team should erect a Maurice Jones-Drew statue in front of the main entrance to Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, where no one will ever see it.
